    KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghan and coalition forces conducted a security operation in Waygal district, Nuristan province, yesterday.

    During the operation the security force identified the al-Qaida-associated insurgent Khanjar, also known as Turab. The security force engaged Khanjar and killed him.

    Khanjar was an insurgent leader with ties to both the al-Qaida terrorist organization and the Taliban insurgency. He provided safe-haven to al-Qaida members operating throughout Nuristan and coordinated Taliban activities in the region. He also oversaw the training of Taliban insurgents in the province.

    After the engagement, the security force conducted a follow-on assessment of the area and confirmed no civilians had been harmed and no civilian property had been damaged.
